SANFORD, Florida - On Wednesday, Coach Christa Teno announced the Spring portion of the 2018-19 Seminole State Women's Golf schedule. By the time the team tees off for Nationals in May, they will have played on the LPGA International Course during three different tournaments (Daytona State, Stetson and Bethune-Cookman's events).
While many college kids will enjoy some beach time during their Spring Break, the Raiders will be playing in back to back events. Seminole State will host their own tournament during the first half of the week (March 4-6) then travel up I-4 for the Bethune-Cookman Tournament (March 6-8). Coach Teno stated, "I wanted to test the team's stamina, both mentally and physically." The Bethune-Cookman event will also give one more opportunity to play on LPGA International. The team also won't be missing any class time.
Louisville's event will provide great exposure to some top flight NCAA Division I schools. Last year's event included Louisville, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Michigan, Southern Miss and Rutgers to name a few.
Even as the year-long season builds to May, the Spring will still be a chance to complete for starting spots. Teno adds, "every spot is up for grabs, I believe we have two spots secured, but our starting line up must be earned."
Buckle up Raider fans, should be an enjoyable season on the Road to Daytona.
